If I was a Dragons supporter I’d be pretty pissed at Hunt. Running it on the last play - unforgivable
Hopefully Qld keep picking him
Poor bugger - he just doesn’t have the coolness if head when it matters. He may not come back from this. Rightly or wrongly, he will be blamed for the loss.
Hunts missus will come out in the paper tomorrow telling everybody to leave him alone. It’s not as if saints are paying him $1 mil a year

Mann had the ball and could have kicked it - decided to die with it instead. Hunt's not blameless though, he should have kicked as soon as he got it. No idea what De Belin was doing at first receiver.

I text my mate at full time (Souths supporter)and he said he almost had to give his girlfriend (Saints fan) the Heimlich maneuver.

Sounds like he will be on a slow wicket for a while. :roll
Today we saw a true champion in Winx, and a true bludger in Cleary!

I'm actually starting to feel sorry for him

He plays his heart out but just makes crucial errors and bad decisions

If he was still in a donkeys jersey though i wouldn'tbe feeling sorry for him

Other playmakers make these mistakes all the time (think Farah, Brooks & Benji for starters!) but they don't get the same flack that Hunt does. I don't understand why he has to cop it all the time, Mann and McInness have some responsibility for last night also. Even when Widdop (their chief playmaker) is playing Hunt will still get the blame for doing or not doing something he should've, while Widdop remains blameless.

It was great to see the camaraderie of S Burgess and James Graham after last night's match. They will go at each other like bulls but still mates at the end and play for Pommyland together.
Malcolm Knox: What has happened this week is a pity for the Tigers, a pity for Jason Taylor and a pity for Robbie Farah, who had achieved more than the Big Four put together but was somehow turned into collateral damage. (SMH 25-26 March, 2017)

Other than that last play i thought Hunt was really strong

It's a shame because Dragons deserved to win

He will however be mainly remembered for big game howlers

Has Inglis been charged yet? If Mitchell got a week for something similar you would think Inglis would have to front the judiciary too?

It wasnt as bad as Mitchells, he didnt jump, mitchell did, GI was tackling in a twisting motion and ended up in the crusher position imo by acident...this is purely a PR move by the MRC

I think the Roosters will win regardless of Mitchell not playing and Inglis playing. Pay no attention to me though. I think I have picked 2 out of the 6 finals played so far.
